Iowa’s Marshall Koehn runs fastest 40 by a kicker in a decade

Iowa Hawkeyes placekicker Marshall Koehn ran an unofficial 4.60 40-yard dash at the NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis today, according to TheScore, and that is the fastest 40-time for a kicker in a decade according to Chris Burke of Sports Illustrated.

Video of Koehn’s 40-yard-dash may be seen below.

It isn’t entirely surprising that Koehn would have a fast 40-time. as he has a long and lean build at six feet tall and 200 pounds flat. He also has a cannon for a leg, having drilled a 57-yard field goal against Pittsburgh earlier this season. To get that kind of power and momentum behind a kick, one has to have pretty solid speed.

Koehn was also a four-year letterman in soccer in high school and was a two-year letterman in wrestling. Thus, not only is he fast, but his footwork must be great as well.
